RUFUS&Bambi brings her cult night Abattoir to the laser basement this Friday and with the Gay Bingo Afterparty taking place upstairs it's sure to be a mental night! We caught up with her ahead of the relaunch to find out more about past parties and what the future holds for Abattoir...
What is Abattoir?
Abattoir is a monthly party where you can be yourself and dance the night away to quality pumping "acidtechnodeepdisco" music.
What have your previous parties been like?
Abattoir started in 2011, in a forgotten basement of a Polish restaurant in West London and since then moved across the city taking over a variety of locations as well as warehouses and proper venues. Every single party was an event in itself and carried a theme that was reflected in the vibe of the night, music and visuals. Our crowd have experienced very unusual things... there has been some metal cut with an electric saw, real fish used for a performance (we won't do that again, don't worry), some voodoo ritual, a great selection of up and coming live acts together with underground and not so underground guest DJs. Previous guests include Andy Blake, A&A (Love Fever), Andrea Esu, Bicep, Giles Smith, Headman, Ivan Smagghe to name but a few.
What's a quintessential Abattoir track?
RUFUS&Bambi: This purple 10" never managed to leave my DJ bag: Trevino - Derelict [NakedLunch]. I have vivid memories of the crowd going crazy for it. A bit like in the video!
ADJ: My track would be Ralph Falcon - The Dig [Original] I played it at every single Abattoir last year, a very trippy techno track.
Tell us about your guests for this party on Friday...
It's a family affair! We are very excited to move to Dalston Superstore and we wouldn't allow anyone else to play at the first party. We are very selfish... come down on Friday and witness myself - RUFUS&Bambi - together with Chris McCormick aka Cromby and Antony Price (ADJ behind the booth) makin' you dance all night long. We will have a solid two hours set each and we can't wait to show you what we do! While you wait...
